When I visited, a funeral was taking place. It is an impressive church, which had to be rebuilt after a terrorist attack in 1925, which killed 120 people. It is a reminder that terrorism in not only a phenomenon of our age.

It's an interesting old church, almost Byzantine structure. Like many churches here, there's a golden altar. It seems that the central figure here is Mary, with various depictions where she is the focus.
